I am going to be honest I struggle with motherhood.
Not just a bit but recently more than a quite a lot. My little girl is turning into a stroppy teenager at the grand old age of nearly 19 months. I am finding motherhood not at all like my hippy idealistic picture.
I am struggling on communication and how to connect with my growing toddler. She understands the words, can do a handful of signs but am I missing something? She can tell me Milk or Snack and Please. More often than not we have toddler tantrums around the fridge or pantry and I’m worried by letting her eat for comfort this could bring a whole load of future issues, also am I showing her that by letting her follow her own path that she’s in control?
Am I too distracted, am I not paying enough attention, am I missing something and what am I doing?
I’m the one slowly loosing the plot. Where’s that hippy mummy gone that I so want to be!
